I love bags, mostly my collection is Chanel but I would like an Hermes Kelly - not for its' status - I just love the simple elegance of the bag and it is a true investment. I know other designers also have Kellys, including Chanel. Is the Hermes one the original? Forgive me if this has been answered before but I really want to collect some pieces from this line. I have scarves and jewelry and fragrances so the handbag is next. I know it will last a lifetime. And I want a new one. I don't trust ebay and have never bought any type of preowned anything. If I can't get the one I want, should I try the preowned route? Also, has the style itself changed much over the years? I am just comparing it to the Chanel 2.55 which has been changed countless times and reissued and stuff. Is the Hermes vintage market something I should take the time to investigate?
